What the heck is this?!

Completely off-topic conversational diarrhea that the rest of the internet won't let you post anywhere because it's so pointless and irrelevant to anything important.

What the heck is this?!

Post by Venomous » Thu Aug 03, 2006 1:43 am

Yesterday, a buddy of mine went to McDonalds and ordered a Quarter Pounder, with extra ketchup and extra mustard.

Instead of what he ordered, he was given a strangely heavy burger, which upon unwrapping turned out to be this:-

Yes folks, it's not a Quarter Pounder, it's not a Double Quarter Pounder, it's not even a Triple Quarter Pounder - it is, in fact, the rare and elusive QUADRUPLE QUARTER POUNDER, aka. "The POUNDER"!!

Again, I stress, this was not a grill order - the only thing he asked for was some extra sauce. We may never know why he ended up with four times the meat...

Yeah, aint that something? Usually MickeyD's fucks up your order in a negative way, one that gives you LESS than what you paid for... I've never seen them accidentally supersize a burger for free before though!!

Heh, yeah, BK has one of them out. Triple and Quadrouple layer burgers. That's a lot of "meat". They always screw up and don't give my buddy pickles when he says "no pickles", then they repeat it. Though that does take longer, I think he should say he's deathly allergic to pickles...

looks like someone was fucking around.
I know where I work if the boss found out we were doing free supersizing there would be hell to pay.

also good quality (for mcdonalds) I have seen far worse looking sandwiches served.

That happened to me at BK once with tomato. I ordered no tomato, I get a burger with tomato. I take it back, say "I ordered no tomato" and they apologize and take it back and give me "another" burger. I open it up again, and upon not-so-careful inspection, I can easily see tomato seeds and crud from where they just opened it up and pulled the tomato out. I mean, WTF, I could have fucking pulled it out myself if that's all I wanted, but I wanted a burger that DOES NOT HAVE ANY TOMATO IN IT. Is that so fucking hard??

So I took it back, practically threw it at them, demanded my money back, and never went back to that particular store. Shame I was so tired and fed up and just wanted to go home at that point or I would have made a bigger scene about it.

Mind you, about the allergic to pickles thing... I once asked for no pickle on a Big Mac at McD's, and the bitch was all like "Uhmm... you realize there's pickle in the Mac sauce, right?"... like, duh, I'm not allergic, just don't want no actual fuckin' pickles... =) But the funny thing is, it's probably a good question to ask in case people are allergic to pickle, but that was the only time anybody ever asked me that, and I often order no pickles.

Hehe yeah I was thinking that. I wonder if it was just a random prank and we happened to get that burger, or if they made that crazy burger for our order instead of the extra sauce we ordered...

Oh, hell yeah. I've seen mashed up crap which just looked like a wrapper full of what seems like the right ingredients in no particular order - and I'm sure you've seen even worse. Considering the amount of meat in that thing, I'm impressed they actually put it together straight and didn't mash the fuck out of it...

- Hell. That would be like going to the local underage backyard brothel, requesting a sixteen y.o. - but ending up with a fourteen y.o. for no extra charge! - Good Times!!!

I beg to differ - this is FOUR times the meat, man!! So it'd be like going to a nasty backyard brothel, expecting to wind up with some 56 year old whore with withered greying labia under a wrinkled hairy mound, and getting a 14yr old (56 / 4 = 14) instead at no extra charge!! We're talking FOUR TIMES THE GOODNESS here man!! =P

I suppose the argument could be made either way, but would you really want something extra from McDonalds?

Knowing that McDonalds is notoriously known for screwing customers, this seemingly rare upbeat of positive attention in the pounder could be a sign that they beat the meat or put some extra special sauce as requested. And they must know that someone would rave in such delight of receiving extra food, they couldn't help resist throwing a few extra slabs of meat to quench your buddies appetite.

Can I ask you, 'Were you and your buddy being watched closely as you ate your meal?'

Did you at least check for spit?

Yes, it is said that I am a horrible person and view the world in a negative eye, but 'tis better to be hungry than sick!

We didn't eat in - that photo was taken on the desk in my lounge room.

But yeah, I'm a cynic too. If something good happens, it's usually either for a bad reason, or just a precursor to something extra bad happening later.

there are no pickles in mac sauce (at least not in the u.s). If I recall correctly its basically mayonaise with a special seasoning (the shit is pre packed by mexicans or other low wage workers in some factory so who the fuck knows what is in it)

I'm pretty sure it's some variation of Thousand Island dressing with finely chopped pickles in it, here at least. Though I've never worked in fast food, and never, ever will, so I'm going on old things I heard back in the day when I had teenage friends doing the burger flipping thing. My memory aint what it used to be.

Jesus Christ, talk about it being SPECIAL SAUCE.

Watch the movie 'Supersize Me'. That movie will make you want to stop eating fast food all together.
